Let the memory of Lee be with us forever
  • 24 years old
  • Born on May 2, 1987 .
  • Passed away on February 7, 2012 .

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Lee Hopkins, 24, born on May 2, 1987 and passed away on February 7, 2012. We will remember him forever. Always in our hearts, always missed.

Thank you to Lee's family and friends for honouring this special life and please feel free to share any photos and stories that are special to you and Lee.

Charlie England has also set up a donation option where funds raised will be directly and solely sent to the Pneumonia Research Department of the British Lung Foundation. Pneumonia is not just a disease affecting the elderly. Both Lee and his mum Jill were taken from us way too early from this disease. Anyone can donate or fund raise whether it's a specific run or just by lighting a candle on his page. Please pass this on to family and friends so we can make a difference in Pneumonia research development. Also if we reach our target a tree will be planted in Lee's name.

The years we've shared have been full of joy.
The memories we've made will go on and on.
I haven't stopped crying since you went away,
and I've asked God time and time why couldn't you stay.
You lit up my life, my hopes, and my dreams.
You've opened my eyes to see what it all means.
So now that you're gone how can I forget;
Because you were the greatest out of all I have met.
Posted by Tom Pearce on February 7, 2013
To our angel
I miss you SO much. Even after a year I think you're still going to be just around every corner and there to share more great times.
Don't think we'll ever come to terms with it but I just KNOW you're with us all the same.
Love always

So we grace another table
And raise our glasses one more time
There's a face at the window
And i aint never, never saying goodbye...

One by one
Only the Good die young
They're only flyin' too close to the sun
Cryin' for nothing
Cryin' for no-one
No-one but you
Posted by Peter Cork on February 7, 2013
So a year ago I learnt the lesson that not every day is promise, when your light went out of my life. I can't believe how time has flown, when it still feel's like yesterday to me. You will continue to live on in my life and to everyone who loved you, you are the hand print on my heart that will never be forgotten. I will miss you yesterday, today and tomorrow my friend.
Posted by Anita England on February 7, 2013
If tears could build
A stairway and
Memories were a lane
We would walk right
Up to heaven and
Bring you back again, we miss you lee with all our hearts x
Posted by Cindy Ford on February 7, 2013
Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed, and very dear."

I miss you so much Lee and although they say time is a healer I've yet to see it....it was wonderful to see your family on your birthday and I think that the combined strength of them and your family will eventually get us through this. Despite the sadness I am SO grateful that you were such a big part of our lives. Love always. X

Hi lee, it wasn't a couple of days ago i woke up at about 3 am and i got up and went for a fag, it was strange because i was wide awake and didn't look sleepy but i looked into the sky and could only see one star and it was a clear sky with other stars and it shinned as if it was i light in front of me and i felt like i had company, was it you there because i believe it was lee xxx

Doll, I miss you every second of every day. I know our bond is strong enough to keep us connected until we meet again. My bestest friend and my ultimate soul mate! You have a new gang of people to show how funny, kind and caring you are and I'm jealous of the time they will have with you but will treasure every second I had. Keep popping in to see me! In my heart forever! Love you Doll! X

Chicken!! what can I say? I'll never understand why, but know how lucky I am when you said Yes to my proposal. Our love is forever and no one can take that away. You complete me baby and I know that I complete you. We have so many amazing memories to share for eternity. One day soon I will watch you dance again and take you to the most special place in the world! I love you baby boy xx
